caused an suv to crash. nbc bay area's mark matthews joins us from richmond with more on the investigation. mark? >> reporter: terry, a little bit of good news for drivers. as you say the freeway opened 20 minutes ago. this has been a horrendous traffic day here in richmond. let me tell you about what the chp says happened. about 12:40 this afternoon, a blue ford suv was going eastbound an 580. it crashed into the fast lane and just before the regatta boulevard exit. the chp officers heading to that crash were on the way there when they got calls from cell phone callers saying that they had witnessed an unidentified vehicle shooting at this blue suv. and when they got to the scene, they found the suv flipped over. they found one occupant inside. a man. a young man. maybe in his 20s who had
suffered a gunshot wound. at least one. he was dead. and there were other bullets in the blue suv. the chp shut down all of the eastbound lanes of 580 in order to collect evidence. and all of the traffic routed down on to cutting boulevard. the big problem with that is about an hour after the shooting, there was a pedestrian versus train accident at the railroad tracks and cutting boulevard. so traffic was snarled for four hours this afternoon. drivers were rerouted through town then back on to the freeway. finally it opened up about 20 minutes ago. the chp is handling the traffic mess. richmond police are handling the homicide investigation. we have another crew at richmond police headquarters at this hour waiting to speak with our watch commander about the very latest on the investigation. we will have that story coming up at 6:00. reporting from richmond, mark matthews, nbc bay area news. >> all right, thanks very much. also new at 5:00, a train
has killed a man in richmond today. police say it happened near cutting boulevard about 1:45 this afternoon. according to officers, a man was walking near the railroad tracks when he was hit by an amtrak train. the crash investigation had streets shut down in that neighborhood. offices say a drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the accident. developing news on president 15-year-old stowaway who hid in the wheel well of a maui bound flight out of san jose. he's back in california. nbc bay area's kimberly terry joins us from teenager's home in santa clara. >> reporter: authorities in hawaii confirmed to us that child is safe and off the island of maui, but there is no word yet on when he might actually return here to this santa clara home. his father reportedly flew out earlier this week to get his son, but sources tell us he is on a flight right now returning to the bay area alone. according to the "mercury news" on friday a judge apparently transferred the 15-year-old out of the custody of the hawaii
department of human services and into the custody of santa clara county's department of family and children services. according to sources, a social worker likely escorted the teenager back to the south bay. on april 20th, federal officials say he climbed a fence and got on to the tarmac at san jose international airport then climbed into the wheel well of a hawaii airlines jet. he was found several hours later in maui's main airport and hospitalized for some breathing problems. that teen reportedly told federal officials he was running away from home and wanted to be reunited with his mother in somalia. the family has limited their interviews with the media but the teen's father did tell "voice of america" his son was always talking about going back to africa. he had just transferred to santa clara high school and according to his dad was having academic troubles. live in santa clara, kimberly terry, nbc bay area news. >> kimberly, thanks very much. an oakland woman has been killed in a house fire. fire started this morning at a
home on parker avenue just south of mills college. firefighters say they found the woman inside. she died at the scene. the cause of the fire is under investigation, but the firefighters say it does not look suspicious. >> we had two rooms fully engulfed. we had four engines. one truck. one battalion chief respond. engines pretty much went in, performed a quick aggressive fire attack. >> firefighters say that fire caused about $150,000 in damage. two homes burned in palo alto today, but several people and their pets were able to get out. firefighters got the call about noon. the fire on brian street quickly went to three alarms. fire officials say one of the homes burned to the ground. a daughter and friend were inside when that fire started but got out safely. an elderly woman and her two dogs were rescued from the sec home. the cause is under investigation. the warriors season coming
down to just one game. in less than two hours they'll be facing off against the los angeles clippers in game seven. what can you say, what a way to wrap up a first playoff series. >> you know what, doesn't get any better than this. when the warriorss tip off thei first game seven in 37 years a boost in the middle, jermaine oneal suff oneal suited up. he suffered an injury thursday night in oracle. an mri showed no ligament damage. the big man ready to contribute as much as he can. mark jackson knows it's now up to his fellows to win one game and survive. >> we work every day, prepare every day for this moment, and now it's time as a coach to get out of the way. you remind them of some things, but you got to be hyped up for game seven. i don't want you on my team. >> very well said. warriors insider
monte pool joins us live from staples center. monte, how much of an impact can we expect jermaine o'neal to make on the court tonight? >> reporter: honestly it's probably going to be more emotional than anything else. jermaine at the beginning of this series was in the starting lineup at center. volunteered to opt out after game three. and the team sped up its play by inserting draymond green instead of o'neal. with the knee injury, the minutes are going to be more limited. he's a big inspirational key for the team and made a number of speeches over the course of the season. he's the veteran guy in the locker room that lets the guys know how to get ready for the game. he'll have an impact even if he doesn't play a whole lot. >> real quick, what the one keep thing to a victory tonight at staples center? >> reporter: i think they have to start fast again. that's been the key. when they've got games they've
gotten in the first quarter, came out of the first quarter with a tie or lead. that's what they'll do tonight. the crowd is going to be amped up. they smell victory. the clippers have become sort of america's team in the wake of the sterling controversy. it's big for the warriors to overcome that from the beginning. >> all right, monte, enjoy the game. thanks for joining us. coming up at 6:00, more on the warriors in game seven with the clips as well as giants and a's highlights. terry? >> taunk you very much. tonight's game, game seven, almost being overshadowed by what's going on off the court. we heard it during the report. the clippers owner donald sterling banned for life from the nba after racially charged comments. now the woman who made that recording is speaking out for first time and asked pointblank whether she believes donald sterling is a racist. brian mooar has the story. >> reporter: the woman at the center of the donald sterling scandal says she is convinced embattled owner of the laeos angeles clippers is not a racist. >> through his actions he's shown he's not a racist.
through his actions, he's shown to be a very generous and kind man. if he was a real racist, then why would he help the world the way that he has? >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with barbara walters, stiviano describes herself as his wing man. she's better known as a woman who recorded a now infamous conversation with sterling in which he asked her not to post photos of herself with african-americans and not to bring african-american people to clippers games. it earned sterling a lifetime ban from basketball. stiviano, who's half african-american and half mexican, defends sterling, but she says he's made similar remarks in the past. >> i think he was brought up to believe those things. >> what things? >> segregation. >> uh-huh. >> whites and blacks. >> right. >> minorities. >> reporter: this coming week, nba owners will decide whether to force sterling to sell his team.

some shaking in the east bay this afternoon. u.s. geological survey says a 2.7 magnitude earthquake struck about five miles southeast of livermore about noon. another quake, this one a 2.3 hit 20 minutes later. the usgs says a few dozen people in the area called to say that they felt it. no reports of damage or injuries. maximum capacity. the main reason why tesla had to shut down a popular job fair in the east bay today. hundreds of job seekers waited outside the tesla factory in fremont this morning. the job fair was suppose the to
run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. tesla announced on twitter it was wrapping up the event at 10:00 a.m. 2 hers after it started. a spokesperson told us the company decided to close today's job fair because all those people, so many people. clogging traffic. police were concerned something might go wrong. some people came all the way from mantixa to check it out. one woman's car broke down before she had a chance to drop off her resume. >> bepeople go through a lot to work out here. the circumstances people had to go through. i knew my car was acting up but i'll do anything to get a job. >> i was kind of disappointed. we can't go inside, you know, to meet the people. you know, i was expecting at least we could go inside to see what's going on inside. they will not allow you to go inside. i don't think that's fair for anybody, you know? >> all is not lost. tesla urges those who were unable to interview today to apply online. on the company's careers site. next, a special partnership

our bay area proud series tonight takes us to stanford,
but not on campus. that's an important distinction because one law professor says what her students need to learn can't be taught in a classroom. nbc bay area's garvin thomas explains. >> reporter: if you have ever taken the university avenue exit off 101, you've likely discovered there is more than just a highway separating palo alto and east palo alto. at times, green lawns of stanford university to the west seem a world away from the working class streets to the east. except, that is, on this street, in this building. >> are you going to have had a chance to talk to the police officer? >> reporter: juliet brodie is a stanford law professor and director of the stanford community law clinic. quite intentionally located off of campus and east of 101. each quarter juliet takes on a team of law students who take on no other courses. they work here 9:00 to 5:00, sometimes more, representing
residents of east palo alto who could otherwise never dream of hiring a lawyer. in the ten years the clinic has been up and running, they have represented 1,500 clients. never asking a penny in return. >> we joke that the clients, i mean, it's really no joke, but the clients of the clinic, they're lottery winners. i think that's totally legit. >> reporter: juliet closely supervises her students as they handle their clients' cases. evictions, backwages, criminal record expungements make up most of the case load. the students getting real life courtroom experience as lawyers. learning to deal with clients, judges, opposing counsel. but most of all, learning that the law is not just something written in a book. >> law is a real thing. it effects real people and real lives and real jobs and real apartments. >> it really is personally affecting someone's life. >> reporter: grace so took the course last semester. like many of her classmates, she will one day be arguing cases
considered much bigger. what juliet wants all of them to remember, though, is that doesn't mean they are any more important. garvin thomas reporting. you can find more stories from our bay area proud series on our website, just go to meteorologist rob mayeda here now and it was a very nice day. not the heat we had earlier in the week but heck of a nice day, rob. >> nice to have the sunshine and not really sweat the moment you step outside. we had 80s and 90s for a couple days. even around the peninsula and into the north bay. today quite a difference. sea breeze on overdrive rifgt right now. emeryville, 65 degrees. looking off to the west, starting to see the low clouds spill back across the bay. sunshine in san francisco. cool 64. and the warmest temperature we're seeing right now up there around napa, close to 70. currently as that strong sea breeze continues. in fact, if you take the temperatures we're seeing outside right now toward santa rosa, 70. look at the 67 degrees in
livermore. compare it to 24 hours ago, it's 20 degrees cooler. that's an amazing change in 24 hours. down toward san martin, too, you're seeing the big cool down. clearly the marine air has made its way into the inland valleys. winds will stay gusty from now until 8:00 tonight. 15 to 25 miles per hour. all the arrows pointing on shore which means the marine layer ramping up above 1,000 feet will bring in more low clouds tomorrow morning. not just the cool and breezy evening right now, but as we head into tomorrow morning, drizzle possible. some of those low clouds. you may wake up to misty skies early on sunday. the afternoon, we'll get sunshine again then high clouds spilling into the north bay late in the day as we track changes in the forecast especially for the north bay looks like as we two through monday. right now, sunny except we have a few high clouds drifting on by. around the south bay today, you've been watching thin, high serous clouds race by. we'll see the low clouds across the bay and fairly cool evening.
notice the drizzle showing up in a few spots picked up on the coastal hilltops or perhaps around mt. hamilton. could see that for early tomorrow morning. then through sunday afternoon, partly cloudy skies. the system we're watching for the chance of seeing some showers mainly for the north bay or maybe some of those east bay valleys, late monday into tuesday, is the system you see right there. so by monday afternoon, around 3:00 or so, overnight, there's a slight chance of seeing a few of these showers. what the system will certainly do, though, is bring those temperatures town. you're seeing that in the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen there. temperatures cooling toward monday. here's a closer look at the system as we head toward monday afternoon. see some of those showers perhaps around the hill tops and napa county. what's left of the system drops in overnight tuesday. so maybe as you wake up tuesday morning, notice how things clear out in time for the tuesday morning commute. that's our best bet for seeing showers in the forecast late monday into early tuesday, mostly across the north bay hilltops or parts of the east bay. tomorrow, 71 degrees in san jose. peninsula, temperatures in the
mid to upper 60s. san francisco, cool, highs in the low f 60s. fremont, 62. livermore, 72. picture perfect as we're watching the temperatures around the tri valley in the low to mid 7 0s. wine country festival looking great for sunday. temperatures nice and comfortable. through the weekend, temperatures holding steady and trending cooler as we approach monday. >> all right, rob, thanks very much. some call it the most exciting two minutes in sports. we're talking about the kentucky derby. today the 140th running. the california colt who blew away the competition and made history. we'll be back to tell you all about it and then cover the papi.
